PM Corbyn Would Refuse to Authorise Killing of al-Baghdadi

The biggest international news of the weekend was undoubtedly the killing of ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, however the Labour Party seemed surprising quiet over the news, without a single press release or Tweet from Jeremy Corbyn or Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry. Labour strangely silent on this…

The reason for the radio silence may be Jeremy Corbyn”s ambiguity on whether he would authorise a strike on the ISIS leader if he became PM.

Interviewing Corbyn in 2017, Andrew Marr posited:

the gentlemen in suits walk in and say ‘Prime Minister Corbyn, we’ve got good news for you: al-Baghdadi the leader of ISIS, we know where he is, we can take him out with a drone strike – can we have your permission?’ What do you tell them?”.

Corbyn then spent a minute skirting round the answer, refusing to say he would. At least he didn’t copy the Washington Post’s editorial line and revere Baghdadi as an “austere religious scholar”…

Jihadi Jack’s Dad Sad Son Can’t Come Home

The former British citizen known as Jihadi Jack after he jumped ship to fight for ISIS, had his citizenship revoked yesterday for obvious reasons. He won’t be coming back into the UK now.

Whilst most Britons think good riddance, his father has given an interview to Channel 4 News saying the move by then Home Secretary Sajid Javid was “cowardly” (unlike the actions of his brave hero son) and the news “felt like a kick in the stomach”. Unlike the news that his son had left the country to fight for ISIS…

The parents of Jihadi Jack, who sent money to the Middle East to fund their terrorist son, described the actions of the UK state as “quite a blow”. Much like Jack’s explosives…

Milne Suggests Collusion Between ISIS and Israel

Yet more video footage has been unearthed by the tireless Iggy Ostanin of Seumas Milne airing more of his… unorthodox views. This time Milne is giving his opinion on “the ISIS franchise and its relationship to Israel”. There are no caveats, Milne is clear that it is his own view:

“I think that’s a very interesting phenomenon myself. At the moment we have on the effective Israeli border, the ceasefire zone in the Golan Heights, one of the most sectarian jihadist groups of the al-Qaedi franchise, Jabhat Al-Nusra, which is actually on the border with Israeli troops.

“Nothing happens, it’s interesting, the Israelis don’t seem too bothered about it. So I think that the role these groups are playing in the region is sometimes illuminated by that kind of fact, who their real enemies are.”

Milne was speaking at a Stop the War conference in June 2015 alongside speakers including George Galloway, Andrew Murray and Jeremy Corbyn – barely three months before Corbyn became Labour leader and appointed Milne as his comms chief. These aren’t just fringe views being spouted at tinfoil hat conferences any more, they’re intrinsic to the worldview of Corbyn’s inner circle…

Barnier Weaponises ISIS to Bash Brexit

What is Michel Barnier thinking? For some reason he has decided to tastelessly accuse Britain of turning its back on the fight against ISIS:

“[Brexit] was a decision taken against the backdrop of a strategic repositioning by our American ally, which has gathered pace since the election of Donald Trump. It was a decision that came after a series of attacks on European soil, committed by young people who grew up in Europe, in our countries. It was a decision that came six months after the French Minister of Defence issued a call for solidarity to all his European counterparts to join forces to fight the terrorism of Daesh. Never had the need to be together, to protect ourselves together, to act together been so strong, so manifest. Yet rather than stay shoulder to shoulder with the Union, the British chose to be on their own again.”

A stupid thing to say for many reasons, not least the massive ongoing value of British intelligence to the EU and the fact that we’ve had five terror attacks in the UK this year. It’s going down very badly on the British side: “Ignorant, inflammatory and irresponsible so close to sensitive negotiations,” says one source. Stay classy, Michel…

Tories Condemn Corbyn’s Support For Fighters Returning From Syria

Top Tories are lining up to condemn Corbyn after Guido revealed the Labour leader’s opposition to criminalising ISIS supporters and his vote to allow fighters in Syria to return to Britain.

Security minister Ben Wallace says:

“Jeremy Corbyn cannot hide from his record of consistently opposing the powers the police and security services need to keep the United Kingdom safe. For thirty years Corbyn has put his support for Britain’s opponents ahead of national security, yet four days before polling day he cynically wants to fool voters into thinking he will keep Britain safe.”

Tom Tugendhat tells Guido:

“The political opinions expressed by ISIS are beheadings, enslavement and rape in Syria, terrorism and hatred abroad. Why can the man who wants to be Prime Minister not recognise treason when he sees it?”

James Cleverly adds:

“Corbyn has been on the wrong side of every judgment call about national security. Calling Hamas and Hezbollah “friends”, boasting about opposing every piece of counter-terrorism legislation, opposing Trident, questioning the police using lethal force during terrorist attacks, calling for cuts to the armed forces, and now this. I don’t believe he has had a sudden change of heart on national security issues and I doubt anyone else will either.”

Alec Shelbrooke says:

“This is a snippet of the forgiveness for terrorism there would be under a Corbyn government, with cheerleading from the sidelines by a Home Secretary that would rather talk about a haircut than her comments celebrating victory against the British state.”

And Bob Neill blasts:

“This is straight from Hansard. At best crass naivety, at worst a willing apologist… either way unfit to be PM.”

Corbyn has some front calling the Tories weak on defence given he defended the rights of ISIS supporters to come back to Britain…
